Growing Young is a CBFNC initiative in partnership with Fuller Youth Institute (FYI). Based on the research findings of FYI and its subsequent book, CBFNC is committed to helping churches better welcome and engage young people ages 15-29 and beyond.

 In January of 2019, a Growing Young Cohort was launched in partnership with the NC Synod of Evangelical Lutheran Churches in America (ELCA). In total, 24 churches (16 CBFNC and 8 ELCA) are participating in a year-long cohort to dive deeper into learning how to implement strategic plans to better welcome and engage young people in the church.

 

The participating CBFNC churches are:

  • Ardmore, Winston-Salem
  • First, Burnsville
  • First, Goldsboro
  • First, Lexington
  • First, Marion
  • First, Mt. Airy
  • First, Statesville
  • Forest Hills, Raleigh
  • Hillsong, Chapel Hill
